    I literally too the (1/x + 1/4) out and had that multiplied by (1/4+x) and I worked from there. Got it eventually.

    For the numerator 1/4+1/x find a common denominator which is 4x. Now you get: [(x+4)/4x]/4+4=[(x+40/4x][1/(4+x]=(4+x)/[(4x)(4+x)] The numerator (4+x) cancels with the denominator (4+x) which then gives you: 1/4x
